Bruno Giacosa Nebbiolo Barbaresco Santo Stefano 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

Garnet red colour. Intense and complex bouquet with notes reminiscent of violet, liquorice and raspberry. Its flavour is full and robust with tannic texture. Wine of great personality that in the best vintages can bear the denomination “Riserva” on the label.

Bruno Giacosa:
The story starts in a simple way, with the native varietals of the Langa and Roero regions and vineyards cultivated with loving care. It continues with pure, meticulous vinification, with ageing in grand oak barrels and with unforgettable Reserves.

The story starts in a simple way, with the native varietals of the Langa and Roero regions and vineyards cultivated with loving care. It continues with pure, meticulous vinification, with ageing in grand oak barrels and with unforgettable Reserves. But it also includes, naturally enough, the choice not to bottle those mediocre vintages deemed unworthy of vinification. Bruno’s art encompasses passion and clear judgement but, above all, the utmost respect for his product, its admirers and for the beautiful countryside where he and his family were born and raised. The Azienda Agricola Falletto Winery comprises twenty hectares of vineyards within the Serralunga d'Alba, La Morra and Barbaresco areas. The vine growing and wine making processes are followed through with care from beginning to end, culminating with vinification and ageing within our cellars in Neive. Some of our wine is produced with grapes grown by those farmers who have always worked our winery and whose prestigious vineyards truly deserve the ‘Bruno Giacosa’ label. Read less

The nose here starts out really tight with gentle scents slowly crepping from the glass. In the mouth it wraps the tongue in a taut drumskin of clean and precise fruit. Cherry pits and leather gain in intensity yet this medium bodied wine remains very cool and reserved with exceptional balance and finesse with a mineral tone offering freshness on the palate and a sweet spearmint note on the finish. This gains sweetness as the tannins round out and while offering alot of pleasure tonight has good upside potential over the next 5-7 years. Very impressive 1997.
